A perfect South Indian Style salad ready in 10 minutes for summer!
It’s mid of April, I can see the summer approaching 🙂 And I totally love it! And when I was in India last month, it was hot too. So, my dad makes me salad Indian way almost daily as a side for my meal. I realized how healthy I ate my food there only after I came back here. He always gives a big cup of fruits in the evening, I keep complaining but I eat them. 🙂 I am still a kid to my parents and I still complain to them for giving me fruits or veggies many times 😉 Deep inside I know that is the best healthy meal 😀 But I just complain! That is the original Me who does not fight, complain to others but I do to my dad and Mom: D may be because I love them more 😀 Or maybe they are the only ones who know the true me. Or May be 😉 I know that they are the only ones who won’t fight with me back 😀
I was never a salad person before 🙂 these days I just make them out of my own love for salad 😀 weird! Raw mangoes are a good source of Vitamin B and Vitamin C, it helps in throwing away waste products from the body :). It also helps a lot not to get a heat stroke, And carrot as you all know it improves vision, helps prevent cancer, slows down gaining and promotes healthier skin!
